Among the exhibits presented by prosecutors are photos of their 20-year-old daughters Olivia Jade and 21 years old Bella giannulli, posing on an indoor rower, who prosecutors say was taken by Lori and Mossimo and sent to Singer to help them access the University of Southern California.
According to the documents, Singer emailed the couple in August 2016, which said, “Lori and Moss, I met USC today about [redacted]. I need a PDF of her transcript and test results very soon while I create a coxswain portfolio for her. It would probably help to get a photo with her on an ERG in training clothes like a real athlete. “
Mossimo replied, “Fantastic. He will get everything. Then, in an email dated September 7, 2016, Mossimo sent Singer the image below.
Giannulli then asked via email, “For accounting reasons, would I classify this as a donation?” The singer replied, “Yes. “
In March 2017, after the formal admission of Giannulli’s daughter to USC, documents indicate that an invoice from Singer’s accountant was emailed to Lori and Mossimo for an alleged contribution of $ 200,000 to the Key Worldwide Foundation, Singer’s non-profit organization. Giannulli forwarded the invoice to his financial advisor writing: “Good news my [older] the girl is [U]SC .. bad [news] is that I had to work the system. “
Prosecutors say four months later Singer asked Lori and Mossimo to “send an” action photo “of their younger daughter for use in an athletic profile which he said would falsely portray her as a coxswain. crew of the LA Marina Club. “
Mossimo replied in an email, copying Lori, with the photo below.
For the second time, Mossimo was allegedly instructed by Singer to send $ 50,000 to Heinel, and in February 2018, when their youngest daughter was accepted into USC, he received another $ 200,000 invoice from the Key Worldwide Foundation. . Mossimo forwarded the invoice to his financial advisor, noting in an email included in the documents that it was “the college’s last” donation “for [his daughter.] “
“Can’t I cancel this?” Mossimo added in the email.
Olivia and Bella’s father encountered a problem, according to the documents, when her daughter’s school counselor told USC on a “routine” call about the candidates they had “no knowledge” of his involvement in the crew and “strongly doubted” the possibility “based on what I knew from his video blog calendar …”
Prosecutors describe Mossimo as having “reprimanded” the counselor, who wrote that Mossimo had accused her of jeopardizing her daughter’s chances of admission.
“He then asked me if I had any idea who [redacted] was and what she had for her “, continues the counselor in the documents. I told her that I was well aware of her style and makeup and fashion YouTube channel and video blogs. I then claimed that I had been a champion and if he read my recommendation letter he would see that I was portraying [redacted] as a guru in his field with a bright future and any school would be happy to have it. “
The counselor stated that he then contacted the USC to inform them that Mossimo had personally informed them of his daughter’s experience as a coxswain.
